would gastric bypass surgery cause stool to float?
I have had gastric bypass and have noticed that at times my stool is formed but floats. I am worried because I have read this may be a signof pancreatic cancer!!!! Please help

Thats one of the symptoms of pancreatic cancer. Other symptoms would be orange urine, jaundice, back pain, itch because of the retaining bile and weight loss. You should ask your doctor if your symptom is normal. Wish you luck.

Oh, for goodness sakes. Dolleyes has the correct answer.

i have read that too so the answer is get your butt to the doctors office

Floating stools are seen in a variety of different situations. Most are diet-related, or caused by episodes of diarrhea that accompany a gastrointestinal infection. A change in diet can lead to an increase in the amount of gas produced by the bacteria found in the (healthy) gastrointestinal tract. Similarly, acute gastrointestinal (GI) infections can result in increased gas in the intestines, due to rapid movement of food through the GI tract. One wrong idea is that floating stools are caused by an increase in the fat content of the stool. In fact, it is increased gas in the stool that make it less dense and allow it to float. Dietary changes, diarrhea, and malabsorption can cause floating stools. Most causes are harmless and the floating stools will go away by themselves when the infection ends or the normal bacteria in the GI tract adjust to the changes in the diet. Floating stools alone do not indicate an illness or problem, and they do not require home care. If a change in diet has caused problems, try to find and eliminate the offending food.

when stool floats, it means you are getting enough fiber!

that usually depends more upon what you eat than anything else, but if this is something new, and you are genuinely concerned you should ask your doctor. people on yahoo don't have any of your past medical records or anything ;)

Your stool can float if you eat fatty foods, too. What have you been eating?
